A Brief Dialogue Between Reporter And Athlete That Exposes The Fundamental Hypocrisy Of College Sports (Or Not)

This comes via the Seattle/Tacoma Fox affiliate. Keith Price is the quarterback for the Washington Huskies. Steve Kelley is a columnist for the Seattle Times. The exchange takes place in the aftermath of Washington's victory on Saturday over Colorado.

Steve Kelley: "What is it about you on game day? You're supposed to be nervous. It's your first year on the job. You're supposed to be wide-eyed. You're just sort of, 'This is what I do.' "

Keith Price: "Yeah, this is what I'm supposed to do. This is what I'm getting paid for—is to play."


Kelley: "You're getting paid?"

Price: "No, no! (Laughs) Scholarship money! Scholarship money! (Laughs)"
